Insight: Reno Air Races / "America's Heartland" / Rufus Buck Gang / Kushman by the Bottle


Published September 12, 2012


Reno Air Races - The national Reno Air Races begin Wednesday and memories are vivid from one year ago when pilot Jimmie Leeward lost control of his plane, crashing into the ground, killing himself, 10 spectators and injuring more than 70 others. But changes have been made in the year since to better protect spectators and pilots. We'll talk with president and CEO of the Reno Air Racing Association, Mike Houghton, and championship-winning pilot John Parker.

"America's Heartland" - Do you find yourself more interested in food than ever before; wondering about the quality, flavor, safety, production and processing of what we serve and what we eat? If you're a fan of the PBS TV show "America's Heartland" - which is produced in Sacramento at KVIE - these are the kinds of stories you see each week. America's Heartland begins its 8th season tonight. We'll talk with the show's producer, Jim Finnerty and hear from reporter Jason Schultz.

Rufus Buck Gang - In 1895, a group of five teenage outlaws went on a 13-day rampage through what was then called the "Indian Territories." Sacramento author Leonce Gaiter became fascinated with the gang and his new novel about them is getting great reviews. We'll talk with him about "I Dreamt I Was in Heaven: The Rampage of the Rufus Buck Gang."

Kushman by the Bottle - It's harvest time in the diverse wine country of Northern California and many local vineyards and wineries are bustling with workers and visitors. Our resident wine expert and Insight's guest host Rick Kushman joins us today to talk about why this is such a great time to go tasting.
